Who says gift tags have to be flat and boring? Create a colorful tag to add to a kid’s birthday gift, or use it to enclose a gift card.
Create this Party Animal Pocket with the My Note Die Set! This die is 20% off this month with the Pockets & Lockets promotion. It’s cute and simple with an easy fold in the back to tuck in a note.
Die cut your My Note and then decorate. We wanted to give this Pocket a cutesy theme, so the Party Animals Stamp & Die Set was perfect. First, stamp your My Note with the Palm Fronds Stamp for that jungle animal kingdom look.
Now for the fun part! It may look like you stamped and popped up the giraffe image. However, instead …
Die cut out the giraffe with the Party Animals Die Set.
Create your insert note on a separate piece of cardstock. When you place it in your giraffe will pop out.

Need a birthday tag for an adult? Create an elegant piece with softer colors.
The Cool Pool and Gold has a subtle gorgeous look to it. For this tag we used the Love Note Die (it’s not on sale, but we still love to play with it).
Die cut your Love Note. Before you tie a sentiment tag to it, add a little artistic flair to the inside!
Use your favorite stencil, like our Bubble Bubble stencil to create a colorful pattern inside. Grab a small Dauber Dowel with coordinating ink pad colors using your stencil as a mask.
Give it that same gold look as the front of the project with this fun tip: Grab a cotton swab or Q-tip and tap it into a Clear Pigment Ink Pad. Use it as a stamp to put dots of Clear Pigments on the cardstock. Then repeat this with Journey Gold Embossing Powder.
